Very comprehensive! I suppose these are the hooks that Microsoft uses when a program crashes. Henrik, I noticed that your subject has AIR native extension. Are you of the opinion that AIR still has a long life ahead of it? I ask because I like AS3 and would like to write some app's for delivery

The rumors of Flash dying are overblown. The Flash and AIR runtimes are still great at what they do. Apple pulled a stunt to shame Flash, but the truth is that they just wanted to protect their appstore. They didn't want to kill Flash. They wanted to kill Flash apps in the browser. They have

There may have been some merit in Apple's battery argument since greater cpu activity, for Flash's vector format, might incur a greater energy cost. Although Flash is having a hard time I was thinking more of using AIR, which I think has more life left in it. The thing is, I have no idea how

The problem here is developers not stating what runtime they use for their apps. What can be done is checking existing apps for obvious signs of the runtime. Shouldn't take long for someone to crawl the appstore and check all the apps for the fingerprint of the runtime. John McCormack skriver:
